Slow Mo Guys Destroy ‘Boring’ Cocktails in Explosive New Video Series

The Slow Mo Guys - Captain Morgan

With summer right around the corner, Captain Morgan has teamed up with YouTube personalities The Slow Mo Guys to remind everyone to break free from the same-old boring daiquiris and piña coladas this year!

The Slow Mo Guys use a high-speed camera to film content in slow motion, which provides viewers with an entertaining, and often hilarious perspective on physical contact. Their videos have helped them rack up nearly 4 million YouTube subscribers.

Through a series of explosive videos, the British duo have expanded on the popular theme integrated into the Captain Morgan White Rum ad spots released earlier this year. In each video, the Slow Mo Guys obliterate traditional summer cocktails in outrageous ways – such as firing off a Cannon. But that’s not all! They also used other bizarre props to cause destruction in the Liquid Nitrogen and Anchor segments.

In celebration of this video series premiere, Captain Morgan is hosting a two-week contest that challenges fans 21+ to guess the number of cocktails that were demolished during the making of Cannon. The 100 fans who come closest to the correct amount of cocktail causalities will win a Captain Morgan branded cannonball. The contest will be hosted on Facebook, where fans can submit their entries in the comment section.

After you’ve submitted your entry, kick back with one of these delicious Captain Morgan White Rum cocktails:
